Day 316: Prayer for the saints to prophesy with the divine element and to minister Christ through their speaking

Pray that the saints would prophesy in the divine way and with the divine element and would be gained by the Lord to minister Christ with all His riches to one another through their speaking (1 Pet. 4:10-11 and notes 102 and 111; Eph. 3:7-8).

1 Pet. 4:10-11—Each one, as he has received a gift, ministering it among yourselves as good stewards of the varied grace of God. If anyone speaks, as speaking oracles of God; if anyone ministers, as ministering out of the strength which God supplies; that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom is the glory and the might forever and ever. Amen.

Eph. 3:7-8—Of which I became a minister according to the gift of the grace of God which was given to me according to the operation of His power. To me, less than the least of all saints, was this grace given to announce to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ as the gospel.
